Elephants were mostly used in the Eastern front, as well as Pak 43 guns because Soviet tanks and heavy tanks were more of a threat than the Western Allied war machine which at the time were still venerable against Pak 38's and kwk 38 guns and lighter Panzer III's. There were one incident in Italy that an Elephant got mobility killed in the track frontally by what some say was a 3 inch gun from a M10 tank destroyer, which also showed one of it's major combat limitations of the design because the tank were a fixed gun carrier and not a turret. That same tank that were a combat lost in Italy ended up being placed in the United States Armory Ordinance Museum. The Elephant tank had the best armored unit K/D ratio of any armored vehicle in the German military at the time.
